An ancient variety originating from the sub-Alpine regions of NE France, Savagnin remains genetically valuable in the modern world of wine as a parent to many of the grape varieties we know today. If you’ve heard of it, you know it as responsible for two quirky styles from the Jura: Vin Jaune and Vin de Paille. Vin Jaune is a wine matured in barrel under a film of flor yeast and Vin de Paille is sweet and concentrated. Savagnin also makes a charming sparkling or still wine and is often found in blends with Chardonnay.
